The presentation explores the conflict of national security and media coverage and discusses the consequent changes in Israeli society and local media. The main argument is that the global media, which do not take into consideration local limitations, have exposed local societies to international coverage means. They caused the reconsideration of central basic values that constitute and shape their nature, and especially change the approach regarding security matters. The growing significance of new technologies established the importance of information and communications in society, mainly in Israel, which is a Western society with an established and relatively free press (in all areas but national security).
